The government needs to explain why the home of a former president was raided by the FBI.
However the information being provided doesn’t justify the drastic decision.
Donald Trump had three words to say to his home’s redacted search warrant.
In the summer of 2016, FBI bureaucrats went to the FISA court to get permission to wiretap members of the Trump campaign. The Department of Justice (DOJ) later reported that there were 17 “significant inaccuracies and omissions” in FISA court warrant applications and renewals.
The FBI didn’t reveal to court the significant information that the evidence that they were presenting of collusion between Trump and Russia had been paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC and was not independently verified.
Such a significant departure from all ethical standards means that the FBI can never be trusted again.
Yet they still want the American people to trust them.
On Friday the DOJ released a heavily redacted copy of the search warrant affidavit for the unprecedented raid on former President Donald Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago.
“Affidavit heavily redacted!!!” Trump posted.
“Nothing mentioned on ‘Nuclear,’ a total public relations subterfuge by the FBI & DOJ, our close working relationship regarding document turnover – WE GAVE THEM MUCH. Judge Bruce Reinhart should NEVER have allowed the Break-in of my home,” he continued. “He recused himself two months ago from one of my cases based on his animosity and hatred of your favorite President, me. What changed? Why hasn’t he recused himself on this case? Obama must be very proud of him right now!”
Trump filed a motion on Monday asking that a “special master” to be appointed to independently oversee the materials taken from his home.
Trump’s lawsuit alleges that federal government hasn’t given him “any reason for the unprecedented, general search of his home,” and accuses the FBI of taking “privileged and/or potentially privileged materials” along with other articles “that were outside the lawful reach of an already overbroad warrant.”
“President Trump, like all citizens, is protected by the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Property seized in violation of his constitutional rights must be returned forthwith,” the filing reads. “Law enforcement is a shield that protects Americans. It cannot be used as a weapon for political purposes. Therefore, we seek judicial assistance in the aftermath of an unprecedented and unnecessary raid on President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida.”
“Short of returning the seized items to Movant, only a neutral review by a Special Master can protect the ‘great public interest’ in preserving ‘the confidentiality of conversations that take place in the President’s performance of his official duties’ because such confidentiality is necessary to protect ‘the effectiveness of the executive decision-making process,’” the filing continues.
